Foreign Office and Predecessors: Control Commission for Germany (British Element): Records Library: Files
This series consists of formal papers such as minutes, agendas, circulated papers, reports, memoranda and publications, which were collected by the Records Section of the Control Commission for Germany. The papers were produced by: the Allied Control Authority and the various organisations under its direction; the separate bipartite (Anglo-American) and tripartite (French, British and American) organisations; and the Control Commission (British element) and its subordinate bodies.
The subject matter includes most aspects of the administration of Allied control of Germany. The records of the non Control Commission (British element) bodies lack references, for the most part, and did not form part of the original collection, but have been accumulated since its transfer to London.
The papers have been arranged by their alphabetical and numerical references. These were not wholly standardised and, in some cases, the papers of a particular body bore different references at different periods. The papers of a given body may therefore be found in different sections of the list.
